Ok, this may be a silly question but one I dare to ask. There are some people who don’t embrace technology, and refuse to understand it. I on the other hand am thankful for technology, and am always intrigued to find out new ways and avenues that technology brings us. Social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) has changed the game for our way of living. Every major corporation or respectable business has a social media connection on all 3 networks. We live in an on demand society, whether its cable tv, internet, music, whatever you want, you can access it quickly. I am a frequent iTunes user, my iPod has over 200 songs downloaded to it, nevermind whats on my computer at home. I love the fact that I can download music, straight to my iPod, whenever I want.
This leads to the topic of our discussion. There are some of us who, like myself, want to get the new cd realeased by our favorite artist, the day it comes out. So how do you handle this situation? Your favorite artist releases a new cd. Its not available on iTunes, they’re not due in your area for quite sometime, and your local Christian bookstore does not carry it, because its not a Gaither product. Do you
a. get online, or contact the office of the artist & order the cd if its not immediately available digitally.
b. wait till the album becomes available for download, or
c. wait till you see the artist in person to purchase it.
I must admit that I am an a in this situation. Case in point, I have been dying to hear the new Booth Brothers album, “Let It Be Known”, which came out Yesterday. But it wasn’t available on iTunes, and I would have to wait to see them on September 10th to purchase the cd. After going on their website, and listening to samples, I decided I could not wait 3 weeks. Am I crazy? Yes. Well what about you, what would you do, or what have you done in the past?
